10 Melhores terrores de Stephen King, pelo Taste of Cinema
Stephen King is one of the biggest names in storytelling. There’s no arguing that. It’s just a simple fact. Since his debut, he’s been a big name and a unique presence in literature. He has had such a successful career with such an original voice, that he changed storytelling.
There’s narrative now that can be described as King-esque. And since his debut, his name has been an attractive one to filmmakers. His work has been adapted nonstop since his debut, with the first to be made, Carrie, being a bona fide classic that set an example for Hollywood that it was very possible to do it right. And while the man has made classics in many a genre, his most famous work is horror so it is only logical that the majority of works based on his stuff is horror. While there may be a lot, there isn’t actually much that is good.
Plenty of crap has been produced, half assed product just made to be sold with the intentions of making a quick buck that comes with having his name attached. But when the movies work, boy do they work. There’s a magic to King’s stories and when a movie gets that right, there’s nothing like it.
Many a talented director has taken a crack at his work and for the most part, they all feel of a piece. So with the massive success of It recently (now currently the highest grossing horror movie ever), ranking the horror movies made out of his work seems pretty damn fitting.
